Two of my favorite things to wear in the fall are leather and leopard, so I figured it only made sense to pair the two together. I wore this last weekend to a dinner at Sotto with my friends. For all you Cincinnatians who have yet to dine here, I highly recommend it! I loved the dark basement atmosphere, and the fact that the room was lit up by long white candlesticks. Definitely perfect for a night out with friends or a date! We had a late dinner, so I took my time getting ready. I love not being rushed, and actually having time to straighten my hair and plan out my outfit without stressing out. I think I took my time a little too much though, because I had forgotten to eat a snack during the three hours I spent trying on multiple outfits. I finished an entire plate of pasta in under five minutes at dinner, and could have easily eaten a few more plates. Meanwhile, my friends all took their time eating like normal people. Luckily the lighting was dark, because I’m pretty sure people would have been judging me.
As much as I love fall fashion, I don’t think I’m ready for fall weather. The night started out warm and nice, but walking to a nearby bar after dinner caused some not-so-subtle goosebumps over my entire body. I tend to get lazy the colder it gets, and that translates into my outfit choices. Heels become nonexistent, and my zip-up Patagonia instantly takes priority over a cute top. My goal this fall/winter is to try to keep it cute and warm!
